  1. I shall never again hemorrhage all over the kitchen floor. However my timing could not have been more fortuitous! Amazon reduced the price and tonight I had an iRobot mop delivered. We shall assay how well the little robot does with blood stains. I am less sanguine about the formerly white rug in the dining room.
  2. Today Shoprite had a notice posted. The gist of which: "Due to unprecedented supply chain problems we don't have much to sell. We appreciate your patience." Product shortages are becoming funny. But at least Shoprite had limes and potatoes. And plenty of fresh produce. (And toilet paper, which is more than I can say for amazon.)

    Lunch 2022

    Lafayette was a patriot and I'm sure he knew how to eat.
  4. Most of my battery of Falk are the classic line, with the iron handles. They are beautiful and lovely. However these days I employ them pretty much only for Hollandaise and when I need my largest frying pan. I am spoiled by my Paragons and induction. Thankfully I have a couple pieces of Falk's induction line. The only real disadvantage is they are not yet offered in the largest sizes. Mitigated by the fact that any heavier and I could not lift them.

    Lunch 2022

    Sadly what that brings to mind is canned asparagus and saliferous chipped beef.
  6. Buy one! My melanger is seldom used but it will do what nothing else will do.
  7. Pricy, thanks, but I might give them a try.
  8. I am bent out of shape with a response from Hormel regarding rancid Planters Peanuts. As anyone who knows me knows I purchase a lot of Planters Peanuts. The jar I recently opened was horribly rancid. The Hormel customer service rep explained the peanuts were rancid because they were past the date code (by less than a month, I might add). I opened another jar and they were fine. I expected at the very least Hormel would have offered me a replacement jar of peanuts. I am not planning to boycott Hormel, as I like their products too much. But I will voice my dissatisfaction with Hormel customer service till the end of the internet. Or of time. Whichever comes first. I used to run a company. That is not how one treats customers.
  9. Do I observe correctly there is an unpeeled onion?

    I don't see the roast. Nor the pot.

    Dinner 2022

    Rib roast, Yorkshire pudding, Brussels sprouts. Ghost Pines zinfandel. Why is it that the NY Times has Yorkshire pudding in the 1961 edition of their cookbook, but not in the 2021 edition? Followed by a bottle of Fonseca port, unharmed by 40 years. Possibly not the finest port, but nice legs. Besides it is frigid cold, there is a storm on the way, and, well, you know what they say.
  12. Was sure you must be mistaken. So I checked on line. Supermarketitaly is asking $7.99 for a box of Diamond Crystal. You got a deal! Better than earlier in the pandemic when Diamond Crystal was not to be had at any price. I remember when beef was 25 cents a pound and postage was 3 cents.
  13. Botulism. It was embarrassing for their PR.
  14. Hence one does not do a quick release.

    Dinner 2022

    I went to Shoprite for wings... ...came home with Kansas City porkchop.
  16. Today's Wall Street Journal has an article on the new Dawn bottle as well.
  17. But in a pressure cooker the stocks aren't boiling.
  18. I'm puzzled. Ireland is part of the EU. Has not carrageenan been a staple of Irish cuisine for millennia? Perhaps before some Peruvian peasant invented the potato. Googling a bit I found no reports that carrageenan, E407, is banned in the EU. I keep carrageenan on hand in the bedroom for my Modernist gelato. Whether carrageenan belongs in chicken wings is another question. One must ask why. Does carrageenan make the meaty bits taste Eire?

    Dinner 2022

    $87.78 per piece and frozen. Remains to be seen if goose would fit in the APO. And there might be leftovers.
  20. E-gullet is not that kind of site.
